From Canon USA:
 
This article was originally published on October 11, 2013 and has been updated to include current product information.

"As digital cinema camera technologies continue to evolve, one pattern has clearly emerged as the new flavor of our time: recording RAW camera sensor data. With the emergence of powerful post-production workstations, it makes theoretical sense that one would want to record all the unprocessed data the camera sensor has to offer and deliver it to post-production to process that data and create the final images we seek. Yet, in reality, the methodologies of implementing these steps seem as varied as the cameras themselves, suggesting that there are other factors at play that influence this seemingly straightforward concept.
 
In my daily dealings as a director, cinematographer and educator, I am astounded at the amount of confusion I see amongst producers, studio executives, clients and even my advanced graduate students at UCLA Film School when it comes to the topics of RAW, Uncompressed and Log recordings. These terms seem to be used interchangeably and often in the wrong contexts. The goal of this paper is to help demystify some of these terms by specifically analyzing Canon's implementation of Cinema RAW recording in its flagship camera, the EOS C500. By identifying and explaining all of the tenants that make up this novel approach to RAW recording, the hope is to empower creative storytellers to use this new technology to its fullest potential by capturing and delivering images of stunning depth and quality."

Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO Lens
From Tamron:
 
A high-performance, high-power zoom lens that delivers focal lengths extending from an unprecedented 16mm at the wide-angle end up to a long-range telephoto 300mm! Incorporates PZD (Piezo Drive) and Tamron’s exclusive VC (Vibration Compensation) system to further enhance the real-world performance of this next-generation “all-round lens”, which makes taking photographs more convenient and enjoyable.
 
February 6, 2014, Saitama, Japan – Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Morio Ono), a leading manufacturer of precision optics, has announced the development of an advanced new all-in-one zoom lens exclusively for digital SLR cameras with APS-C size image sensors that provides an amazing 18.8X zoom ratio. The lens sample will be on display at the Tamron booth at the CP+ 2014, which will be held from February 13 to 16 in Yokohama, Japan.
 
Since the launch in 1992 of the 28-200mm (Model 71D) high-power zoom lens – which featured a revolutionary compact, lightweight design – Tamron has been continually expanding its portfolio of world-class optics to benefit consumers.
 
Tamron previously launched an 18-270mm (Model B008) all-in-onezoom lens exclusively for digital SLR cameras with APS-C size image sensors that features a 15X zoom ratio, superior image quality, swift, quiet AF, and Tamron’s acclaimed VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism, in an ultra-compact package. This ground-breaking lens has been winning plaudits throughout the world.
 
Responding to consumers’ demand for expanded focal lengths both at the wide-angle end of the zoom range and the telephoto end, Tamron has begun developing a completely new all-in-one zoom lens design that provides an impressive focal length range extending from 16mm true wide-angle to 300mm super-telephoto.
 
Product Highlights

  1. A further expansion of the imaging range. With a minimum focal length of 16mm (35mm film equivalent: 24.8mm) at the wide-angle end of the zoom range, and a maximum focal length of 300mm (35mm film equivalent: 465mm), this remarkable new lens provides a zoom ratio of approximately 18.8X.
  2. Responding to requests from consumers who wanted to be able to photograph subjects with a wider viewing angle than is possible with conventional high-power zoom lenses, Tamron has begun developing a unique lens with a minimum focal length of 16mm. At the telephoto end, the maximum focal length has been increased to an impressive 300mm. Users of this new lens can enjoy unprecedented framing flexibility by easily adjusting the angle of view using the convenient zoom ring.
  3. Superior, reliable image quality with a universal lens.
  4. The lens construction features 16 elements in 12 groups. This includes three Molded-Glass Aspherical elements, one Hybrid Aspherical element, two LD (Low Dispersion) elements, one XR (Extra Refractive Index) glass element, and one element of UXR (Ultra-Extra Refractive Index) glass, which has greater refractive index than XR. The full use of specialized glass elements in the design contributes to thorough compensation of optical aberrations. In addition, the use of the latest coating technology for suppressing reflections on lens element surfaces minimizes unwanted flare and ghosting and assures sharp, crisp, high-contrast images.
  5. Using a new design approach to create an ultra-compact lens.
  6. The latest optical technology has been used to provide an expanded zoom range (compared to the B008) at both the wide-angle and telephoto ends, without necessitating the use of an oversized lens body. By employing UXR glass (which helps to reduce the size of the front lens diameter), an optimized layout of the Molded-Glass Aspherical elements, and adopting a 5-lens-group zoom system approach to provide enhanced design flexibility, the new lens embodies the fusion of state-of-the-art optical design, sophisticated mechanical design, and high-precision lens manufacturing technology, thereby attaining a compact size, an unprecedented zoom range, and superior image quality.
  7. A minimum focusing distance of just 0.39 meters supports an extensive range of macro photography capabilities.
  8. The new lens provides a minimum focus distance of 0.39 m over the entire zoom range, with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9. This makes it possible to get right up close to the subject of the photo to enjoy easy, stress-free macro photography.
  9. PZD (Piezo Drive) delivers faster, quieter autofocus action.
  10. The PZD (Piezo Drive), an advanced standing-wave ultrasonic motor system, delivers faster, quieter, more precise AF action when the autofocus is engaged. There is enhanced support for contrast-detection AF capabilities, and focusing when in live-view mode has been made smoother. The new lens also features full-time manual focus, a function that was not provided by B008, making manual focusing more convenient.
  11. Sharper images with VC (Vibration Compensation).
  12. Tamron’s acclaimed VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism is incorporated into the new lens. VC reduces image blur caused by camera shake to deliver significantly sharper images even when shooting handheld at long telephoto settings
  13. Moisture-resistant construction for worry-free outdoor shooting.
  14. Upgraded cosmetic design.
  15. Tamron has upgraded the cosmetic design and finish of this lens to create a more sophisticated, high-end look in keeping with the demands of discerning DSLR users. Employing a sophisticated linear pattern rubber grip on the zoom and focus rings, and an elegant tungsten-silver name-brand ring, etc., this newly designed model accentuates its visceral presence with understated elegance and class.

Canon 70 Million EOS Interchangeable Lens Cameras Logo
From Canon:
 
TOKYO, February 6, 2014—Canon Inc. announced today the achievement of a camera-manufacturing milestone as combined production of the company's film and digital EOS-series interchangeable-lens cameras surpassed the 70-million mark on February 5.
 
Production of Canon EOS SLR cameras began in 1987 at Canon Inc.'s Fukushima Plant (now Fukushima Canon Inc.) with the EOS 650, later moving to such production bases as Oita Canon Inc. and Canon Inc., Taiwan. Following the spread of digital SLR cameras in the early 2000s, production rapidly increased, surpassing the 60-million-unit mark in October 2012 and now, approximately one year and four months later, reaching the 70-million-unit threshold.
 
EOS, which stands for "Electro Optical System," also carries the name of the Greek goddess of the dawn. Introduced in March 1987 as a new generation of AF SLR cameras, EOS cameras were the world's first to incorporate an electronic mount system enabling complete electronic control not only between the lens and body, but throughout the entire camera system.
 
Based on the key concepts of high speed and ease of use, EOS-series cameras, including the top-of-the-line professional-model EOS-1 released in 1989 and the popular compact, lightweight EOS Kiss (EOS Rebel XS or EOS 500 in other regions) introduced in 1993, actively incorporate innovative technologies and have gained acceptance from a wide range of users. As digital SLR cameras gained increasing popularity starting in 2000, Canon developed such advanced technologies as its proprietary CMOS sensors and high-performance DIGIC digital image processors, as well as an extensive lineup of EF lenses, in an effort to fulfill the company's new key concepts of high speed, ease-of-use, and high image quality. Currently, Canon offers a broad product lineup that serves the needs of all levels of users.
 
Among the new Canon cameras that contributed to the realization of the 70-million-unit production milestone were the EOS 70D, featuring innovative Dual Pixel CMOS AF autofocus technology, and the entry-level EOS Kiss X7 (EOS Rebel SL1 or EOS 100D in other regions), which combines a ground-breaking compact, lightweight body design with advanced basic performance. Additionally, in September 2012, Canon added the EOS M compact-system camera to its product lineup and, at the end of 2013, launched the EOS M2, featuring significantly enhanced AF performance, which has been warmly received by the market.
 
EF lenses for Canon EOS-series interchangeable-lens cameras are also on track to realize a major milestone as cumulative production is scheduled to pass the 100-million-unit mark in 2014.
 
Canon will continue to refine its diverse imaging technologies based on its core optical technologies, striving to produce exceptional and reliable lenses and cameras that cater to the varying needs of photographers—from first-time users to advanced amateurs and professionals—while contributing to expanding the culture of photographic and video imaging.

RayFlash 2 Ring Flash Adapter
From ExpoImaging:
 
Watsonville, California – February 05, 2014 ExpoImaging, Inc., distributor of the original Ray Flash Ring Flash Adapter to the United States market, today announced availability of the Ray Flash 2: Universal Ring Flash Adapter.
 
“We are pleased to be able to introduce the new Ray Flash 2 to U.S. photographers,” said Erik Sowder, ExpoImaging CEO. “When the original Ray Flash was created, location photographers were astonished to find that they could use it to achieve ring flash-style lighting using their speedlights. Now, the Ray Flash 2 accommodates a much wider variety of DSLRs and speedlights with its adjustable and more affordable design.”
 
The patented Ray Flash 2 creates the characteristic ring flash look, a shadow-wrapped, flat lighting effect valued by photographers for fashion, portrait, and macro photography. To create this effect, the Ray Flash’s acrylic light guides efficiently direct light from a camera mounted speedlight into a circle around the camera’s lens.
 
The new Ray Flash 2 introduces a universal speedlight mount, adjustable height and a lower profile. A new, universal, adjustable mount with a spring-loaded clamp allows the Ray Flash 2 to quickly and securely attach to different sizes of speedlights. The center column of the Ray Flash 2 slides up and down to accommodate variations in camera and speedlight heights. The Ray Flash 2 is also available in two different versions, long and short, to fit the tallest and shortest DSLR bodies available. Ray Flash 2’s lower profile compared to the original Ray Flash makes it even more portable for location photographers.
 
Pricing and Availability
 
The Ray Flash 2: Universal Ring Flash Adapter is now available in the U.S. through photo specialty resellers nationwide. The Ray Flash 2 retails for $139.95.
 
B&H carries the new ExpoImaging RayFlash 2 Universal Ring Flash Adapter.
